for the united states and for its relationship with that new government that is forming in libya? i've spoken to a senior administration official here who says that officials in libya are cooperating right now with u.s. officials. of course, this has taken a bit of a political turn as well, matt. president obama in his initial statement, while condemning the attacks, also said that he condemned all sorts of religious intolerance. mitt romney put out a statement, i'm going to read it to you, in which he said it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. in response the obama campaign put out this statement, matt. we are shocked that at a time when the united states of america is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in libya governor romney would choose to launch a political attack, so even while they are dealing with this unfolding situation, politics still playing a role here, but, again, we are expecting president obama to address the nation fr

ties with israel by now, could have cut off all intelligence cooperation with the united states. none of that has happened. it's important at a difficult time like this to bear in mind where things could have gone in a much more negative direction. it's been a terrible week for the united states, but i'm still hopeful about a lot of the arab spring. we've got to navigate some tough times right now, and syria remains a huge mess. but if you ask me how things are compared to how i would have guessed a year ago, probably better than i would have surmised. >> the u.s. still controls pursestrings in as much of the foreign aid to that part of the world. will that allow the u.s. to continue to exert some influence? >> absolutely. i think president morsi knows this in egypt. it's part of why he's sensitive to the fact that his initial reaction to this video. however understandable at a religious level is inappropriate at a political level, at a leadership level. i'd like to hope he would have figured this out on his own, but it's nice to have $1.5 billion worth of leverage on our side. >> chu
